Kenyan Dawa Cocktail

Given that Dawa is Swahili for "medicine" or “magic potion” this famous cocktail is said to be so potent that it will cure whatever ails you. The fact that it's the most popular cocktail in Kenya just might support this claim. The recipe is based on a famous Brazilian drink that was introduced to Kenya. It is now one of the most widely consumed cocktails in Kenya and has spread through out North and South Africa (especially in touristy regions). Enjoy!!!!!

1 tbsp brown sugar

2 shots vodka

Crushed ice cubes

1 whole lime quarter with skin on

1 Dawa stick twisted in honey

1) Put lime and sugar into a whisky tumbler.

2) Crush limes slightly, add ice and pour in the vodka.
